APEX is a bridge program at Wayne State University that helps students who otherwise would not be admitted to the school based on grades/test scores, to participate in a summer college-readiness program. Students attend college-level courses taught by faculty (like myself), live on campus and attend workshops to help them prepare for college in the Fall semester. My APEX writing course is based on a common syllabus that I helped to revise for the summer bridge program of 2015.
In this course, much of the work I do is supportive in nature. My role is to coach, correct and congratulate students as they grow in their abilities–and confidence–as writers.
